agency, the fbi, for quite a number of years, and have been a defender of tsa and have often visited tsa at the indianapolis international airport within the last month and visited with tsa there. certainly have been impressed by the manner in which tsa and your previous agency of fbi about making the threat assessments, go about making changes in rules and regulations and the amount of time and effort that goes into making .hose changes i have incredible faith in our law enforcement agencies. and of the indianapolis airport is now part of, as we talk about changes, whether it is in the type of items allowed, but you also started a risk-based security program called managed inclusion. it is being piloted at the indianapolis international airport as well as tampa. can you expand on that about managed exclude -- inclusion, what the customer experience has been, how it is being administered, and how it is not only impacting efficiency but what you're hoping is with respect to safety of the passengers and of those who travel? certainly the pilots and flight attendants to travel -- how has ma

in the house rules for the ethics committee that says that another body is looking into something like the fbi or something like the irs and the ethics committee is aware of it, they have the option of not opening their own inquiry. if there is something like a thel dui case, chances are ethics committee will not give into that and let local authorities proceed. if a member is convicted of a felony, or indicted for a felony, they have to open proceedings at they choose not to go forward, they have to explain why. generally, they will defer to local law enforcement for something like a dui. salt greg is calling from lake tahoe, calif., good morning. help but thinkt that congressional ethics is a term which is an oxymoron. on the other hand, i recognize the difficulty. i watched of the charles rangel hearing come start to finish. it impressed upon the the difficulty of the matter. you had an equal number of members of each side on the panel. opendly, the hearings are but a lot of the matters are closed. in other words, the facts at issue are not always revealed. it is hard to discern as a citize
, fbi commute dha, treasury, order patrol agents. these people are hugely dedicated people fighting this fight her to shoulder with us. we have to acknowledge the fact they are not in uniform but these don't wear military uniforms. they do it very, very tough job, but they're overwhelmed us to points out the intricacies and efficiency of this networking, ruthlessness of it. we need to remember the true heroes in every sense of the word. >> these are not only ruthless, all server that lets because the amounts of money are so huge and i agree with you that are civilian non-person in authority, which had a prior point in our history would've been relying on completely to combat networks now has been out and an outmanned in our research research by this criminal networks, so we've relied increasingly on the network you and the men and women into your command have done. i wonder whether you feel either more resources to them for more coordination with you is perhaps an answer to dealing with these networks. >> if i understand the question, i'm a believer in the away game. i go back to th
came from the fbi. what are your thoughts about looking at what do we do? should there be drug treatment? what do we do? given much -- this the first i have heard of it. i think an independent look would not hurt. by independents and been byependent objective -- independent i mean independent objective to look a certain aspects of incarceration. there are two big challenges, who and what. who would do it and to what would be the specification so that it is not a wide range of enterprise or initiative without the possibility of coming back with recommendations that can and should be adopted. smaller with a specifically defined set of goals and parameters, i do not think it could hurt. .> that is my last question it is probably the last time you will testify before this committee. i was called off the floor the other day. i understand that the directors when the search for two more years. what is your position? >> he said it will take a bill. i said i will speak for the bill. i think should talk to mrs. muller first before you presented. >> the law. the hearing is adjourned. >> t
, justice part, science so we are properly, i think, funding things like the f.b.i., the d.e.a., law enforcement agencies, the commerce and trade divisions, as well as all of the others included in the bill. so, mr. speaker, this is a good bill. i'm proud of it. i'm proud of the fact that we were able to do all of this, frankly, as smoothly as it has gone. that's a tribute to the work of people like nita lowey, the new ranking member on the full committee, and the work of senator richard shelby, ranking republican on the senate side. of course the new chairman of the committee over there, senator barbara mikulski. all of us work together and we were determined to produce a product that would be good for the nation, number one, but as it turns out i think it's good for this body and the senate. we proved when we set our mind to it we can get complicated, hard things done. and that's what this bill does. so, mr. speaker, i urge an aye vote on 933. yield back. the speaker pro tempore: all time for debate has expired. pursuant to the order of the house on wednesday, march 20, 2013, the p
are the second-largest contributor to the joint terrorism task force in the country outside of the fbi itself. important work needs to go on. in my view, we should not take and divert resources from domestic investigations to the detention budget if that would mean fewer child exploitation cases, fewer special agents on the streets, few were drug- trafficking cases. >> ice has a mandate to maintain 34,000 beds. how many individuals do you feel can safely be released under an alternative detention? >> the alternative detention program has an enormous amount of promise. there is a very high rate of appearance for the full-service model. long-term, it is something congress should pay a lot of attention to. i think it could help some of the budget challenges that the committee and other committees are wrestling with. district alternative to the tension is to make sure the case is heard quickly. the average cost of alternative detention of a full-service model is $7 per day compared to as much as $122 a day. if the case takes much longer to be heard and decided, eventually you lose the benefit of
